Back pain is known to be one of the leading associated causes of disability in the United States. Even though back pain can usually start as a minor muscle ache, discomfort and symptoms may quickly progress. Understanding the root cause of your symptoms at an early stage may prevent you from suffering from needing surgery in the future.
There are two types of pain associated with back pain; acute and chronic. Typically pain which does not last for more than six weeks is labeled as acute pain, while pain that lasts longer than 6 weeks may be chronic.
